This site has been preserved in as much as it has retained its original shape and secure boundaries along with the battered remains of several buildings.

It is now a highly secure site used as a Scrap yard and commercial vehicle sales.

I was unable to actually enter the site itself as I visited during a weekend as such my images are confined to the parts of the site facing the main road along with a series of drone images
